This presentation explores the ways in which the Digital Collections Center (DCC) at FIU has been transforming from a primarily technical unit focused on the various processes involved in digitization and metadata creation to include a highly collaborative aspect. Over the past year, our DCC has been faced with the challenge of filling different roles. We have adapted our workflow to include a liaison model and significant outreach with other departments in the library and with our community partners. As we explore the impact this transformation has had on our workflow and partners, the hope is that other librarians and departments will be able ot consider this model and which aspects may work for them. Ultimately, a discussion on the influence and challenges the DCC has encountered with the programming of workshops and trainings should provide some insight into what others facing similar changes can expect.
